Fabulous Currency Leaf Insects by Takumi Kama

To dodge becoming prey, leaf insects use imitation to mix into their surroundings. But in Takumi Kama’s created future, when the insect’s natural environment has been totally destroyed, these masters of disguise will have no choice but to move in with those who took away their home.

Animals and insects are no strangers to the work of Japanese painter Takumi Kama, who recreates them in acrylics with extraordinary precision and naturalness. For a new exhibition at BAMI gallery in Kyoto, Kama came up with 2 distinctive, whimsical leaf insects that camouflage themselves in the city.
